sectors of the economy -- education, health care, energy -- that haven't really been disrupted that much in the last 25 years, what i think of as the first internet revolution, getting everybody to believe it was important, get connected, multiple devices, multiple networks, that's sort of been accomplished. the second revolution is how you use the mobility of the internet to transform other aspects of life. those are worthy, you know, great entrepreneurs across the country are supporting, and they are the industries that are going to drive, you know, the future. initially, it was sort of the agriculture revolution, kind of, you know, the midwest and then sort of the industrial revolution and then sort of the finance and media revolution, more recently the technology revolution, the next wave is where we need to be positioned as a nation, and we really need to recognize these entrepreneurs are in some ways american heroes, too, because they're the ones who are taking the risk of starting these companies that can change the world, but also make sure we have a robust, growing economy in wh

on education or a single one on gun control, all things that i think are important to the people of the 10th district and i think are critical votes -- [inaudible conversations] schneider. if we look at the record of this congress which is the most ineffective in our lifetimes, he voted twice with the ryan plan. he talks -- he voted with this congress over 200 times against our environment, over 28 times against obamacare. he's voted with them on issue after issue, on every core issue -- >> moderator: okay. you raised an important one. congressman dold, your votes on obamacare. you voted against it. why? dold: if we look at the affordable care act, i think we can agree there are some things -- >> moderator: by the way, you call it the affordable care act as opposed to obamacare. dold: i think we got 23 new taxes on this. the estimates in terms of the cost estimates on the new set of tenures doubled. >> it didn't double. dold: it did. now after two years it is doubling, and so i do think this is wildly troubling because small businesses are looking at how can i, in essence, pay the penalty an

everybody is a link so anybody that is on line as a potential avenue. it is a public education issue. it's like in the 1960's the seat belt campaign they didn't use to make cars with seat belts. there was a big issue. nobody's .1 to put on a seat belt and they began to buckle up for safety. now if we ever really think of getting in the vehicle without putting on your seat belt is just a reflex. you do it. it would be great and a great bowl for us to have that same kind of action and reflex capability where cyber is concerned. >> so what is the symbol -- >> we have a campaign called think connect, which is designed to mask people before the download and e-mail from a source they've never seen before, for example, they really think what could that be, and protect themselves. and there's a whole host of things individuals can do. again we have them posted on the website commands to a number of entities across the country in terms of what individuals can do they are trying to push down to younger people. you mentioned kindergarteners. yes as they grow up this is just a part of their life. th

to engage the practicing bar, people from corporations, people who are not lawyers in the educational enterprise and also when public policy discussions. obviously we have a great advantage in being in washington d.c. and having so much access to the world of policy. but in addition, it's not just the location. it has to be your orientation as a law school. so it is something that i've emphasized since i've arrived, but long predates me, that this school wants to always be the place to convene public policy discussions, to create a forum for actionable information, to create an opportunity for nonpartisan and bipartisan discussion. as i like to stay in d.c., but outside the glare of d.c., not on a congressional hearing room floor, not a formal interagency process, but in academic and touche in, where important policy discussions can be had and maybe we can move the ball forward on important issues of thought leadership. in that regard, we are thrilled to be able to host this conference. and this is part of a series of conferences we have held over the last few years on the important r

are investing in education and development of future capabilities and procedures and we have to invest them -- invest in them as we go forward. >> can i do a short follow up on that? how does that approach applied to the army today and the contractor support? they become diminished as part of that. >> i think potentially they might a little bit. >> in terms of numbers. >> yeah in terms of numbers but they will still play a role. >> how do you incorporate into the planning what those numbers need to be particularly on the contractor side? >> i think what we do is first trade-offs trade-offs work in this form and what they want to do is have the right balance because again contractors provide unique capabilities that we simply don't have. that is what they will focus on. we have civilians giving us the continuity and consistency we need and then we need our military members to provide us experience, expertise and frankly sometimes just the validity of what we are trying to do based on their experiences. i think that is what we are trying to capture. what i'm saying now is that his overbalance
